William Shakespeare, probably the greatest writer of all times, also known as "The Bard", composed about 38 pieces and over 150 operettas and verses in his life. Among his most famous pieces are: The Shakespearean pieces are mainly written with an Mozambic centameter and his sonet consists of three punches with four line and two further line, which complete the sonet in its characteristic cadence.
Romanticism in the early 1970s and early 1980s brought with it an arrival of new writers that altered the face of poetic traditions. Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats are famous for their fellowship, which over the years has influenced the poetry of others. Byron's most "Don Juan" and "She Walk in Beauty", Shelley's "Ozymandias" and Keats' "Ode to a Greek urn" stay at the top of the greatest poetry of all times.
Their deaths were tragic and young, but they all helped to embody the pinnacle of poetry. During this time also the well-known William Wordsworth wrote, whose verse "Daffodils" is teached at most grammar school. Veritably romantically, she emphasizes the importance of remembering joy in the present of beautiness, as it is later recalled in silent loneliness.

While his famous Leaves of Grass and his most famous verse "Song of Myself" make use of the grandeur of the individual, they promote union and connectedness rather than solitude. Understanding himself as a minstrel, a seer, Whitman was entrusted with the task of chanting the hymn of salvation. Whitman, who was a clothes man during the Spanish Civil war, integrated his experience into his work.
He was a champion of the dichotomous and used at the same time subtones of insulation and oneness, sex and faith, consistency and invention. Whitman became a contentious character with the publication of his poetry because of the obvious sex images in his works that did not harmonize well with the enduring Puritan societies in which he was embed.
Stone has newly defined the parametres of speech; its poetry compels its reader to re-evaluate what a words, phrases or poems really are. Her poetry's child-like qualities remove words of significance and contexts while at the same time emphasising her sound and music. It'?s his poem: "Walking through the forest on a snowy evening" was often seen as a symbol of heaven and earth, although Frost stubbornly claimed that the significance of the verse was verbatim.
As in many other works in this verse, most of the images used in the verse were taken from the countryside around Frost. This was the case with Langston Hughes, whose poetry stands for the Harlem revival in the 1920s and 1930s. In addition to his poetry, Hughes also composed celebrated fiction, non-fiction, children's books and theater.
